They say: A sweet ride for beginners and pros.
We say: A simple, well-made, go anywhere stick. Not one for specialists in any one area, but it has all the tech you need, and at that price, who’s complaining?
Tester says: A solid all rounder that’s well packed with tech for the money.

About Atomic

  • Buiding boards since: 2001
  • HQ: Altenmarkt, Austria
  • History lesson: Atomic, which was started in 1955, has got to be one of the oldest companies on this list. Founded by the Austrian Alois Rohrmoser in a wheelwright’s workshop in Wagrain, the company made some of the best skis in the world during the sixties, seventies and eighties. They pretty quickly outgrew that wheelwright’s workshop in Wagrain, and now operate their very own factory in Altenmarkt. In 1992 they decided to start making their first snowboards as Oxygen, but eventually they scraped this in favour of Atomic Snowboarding.
  • Ridden by: Riders who are looking for real good quality boards at a price that won’t break the bank – people who let their riding do the talking. And Johno Verity.
